Private Lessons and Pedagogy Opportunities
Bethel offers private instruction in piano, organ, voice and all wind, string and percussion instruments, plus a cooperative program in piano pedagogy that gives pianists a unique and valuable opportunity for concentrated study. All students engaged in private study are occasionally invited to become paid apprentice instructors in the Bethel College Academy for the Performing Arts, where they are mentored by college faculty. More than 200 community students participate in BCAPA’s programs, which include private lessons, a Suzuki violin program and dance.
